Our mission is to solve the most important and fundamental challenges in AI and Robotics to enable future generations of intelligent machines that will help us all live better lives.

This role will be based in the External Engagement Programs (EEP) Team, whose primary goal is supporting our new Outreach Center in Kendall Square, Cambridge. The goal of the EEP Team is translating research concepts into demos accessible to a broader audience beyond academia and tech.

Engineers on the EEP Team will take internal demos from the AI Institute and redesign and build them into fun, dynamic, and educational demos that will be used in our Outreach Center. Exhibits will rotate, resulting in a consistent stream of innovative projects for the Team to tackle. Some demos may also be used at conferences and expositions about robotics and engineering. The ability to travel (2-3 weeks per year) to support these demos is helpful.
